For this edition, we find ourselves on Atlantic Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts and at the headquarters of The Barr Foundation. We’ll begin with their president, Jim Canales, and then hear from some of the other members of the staff.
No matter what the field of endeavor, we all enjoy watching organizations take shape, emerge, grow and evolve into something that increases their effectiveness and impact. There’s a foundation based in Boston that fits that description to a tee. It’s The Barr Foundation. And it is fortunate to be led by one of the most capable individuals in the field of philanthropy, and he just happens to be with us now. He is Jim Canales, the President of The Barr Foundation.
